CHICAGO – In what could be the worst mainstream release of the summer, “I Love You, Beth Cooper” wastes talent, production values and ultimately time in a cliché-ridden mess that produces little or no real love.

What begins as a promising premise – the nerdy high school valedictorian, Denis (played by a dull, smirking Paul Rust), breaks bad at his graduation speech and proclaims his love for unattainable cheerleader Beth Cooper (Hayden Panettiere, who also plays the cheerleader on TV’s “Heroes”) – devolves into humorless story impossibilities.

‘I Love You Beth Cooper’ opens everywhere Friday, July 10th, and stars Paul Rust, Hayden Panettiere, Jack Carpenter and Alan Ruck, directed by Chris Columbus. Check local theaters for showtimes.

Re: ‘I Love You, Beth Cooper’ Inspires Hatred for the High Schoo

Thank you for your service and kindness, it was much appreciated. In addition to my gratitude, I would like to share with you the best basketball. LeBron James is one of the best basketball players of the last decade, and when such a strong sports personality (and massive ego) gets shown up, people want to see it. That’s why the rumors of a LeBron James gets dunked on video existing are so tantalizing. An undergraduate player named Jordan Crawford dunked on LeBron, and while it was captured, it won’t get on YouTube. Immediately after it happened at the LeBron James Skills Academy, he had Nike seize all tapes. It has been suggested that he get off his cross, use the wood to build a bridge and get over it. However, no quick cash or unsecured loans will produce footage of when LeBron James gets dunked on video.

  • Happy Christmas

    CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.

    CHICAGO – The oughts was the era of the workplace mock-doc comedy, with shows like “The Office” and “Reno 911!” born into a time where TV viewers were excited to see see fake realities about the crumminess of a job. While this series has been available in separate season collections previously, “Reno 911!” is now available in a complete series set, one that boasts a grand amount of special features content in spite of some lacking comedy in the actual show.
